Bob has worked in the accessibility field for over 15 years, his publications are available via the ACM Digital Library. Prior to joining CNIB as their Library Web Developer, Bob’s field of study was the design of accessible user interfaces on mobile devices. This led to the development of techniques to model user capability to properly inform the selection and configuration of interaction techniques on those devices.

As CNIB’s Library web Developer, Bob works to develop and support the front-end of CELA‘s digital library (the Centre for Equitable Library Access). CELA, the Centre for Equitable Library Access, provides a national online digital library to print disabled patrons across Canada, and is funded as part of Canada’s public library system. The service is designed and managed on behalf of CELA by CNIB in Toronto.
